Imperious PV Sindhu registers third straight win, meets Chen Yufei in semis

The Indian brought her best attacking prowess to display in Dubai and with the crowd roaring behind her, Sindhu took the first game 21-15 in 24 minutes. Sindhu had thrashed Yamaguchi in straight games in her last Group A match Friday.

Brilliant from Sindhu- she shows quick reflexes to make a lovely return- the lead is 7-3 now.

The 22-year-old Indian dished out a controlled game of badminton to outclass the Chinese 21-15, 21-18 in a match that lasted a little less than an hour.

Sindhu finally breaks Chen's streak, makes it 16-16.

Only on Friday, Sindhu overpowered Yamaguchi to book a spot in the semifinal.

With today's win, Sindhu has now reached three of the four Major finals in badminton, with the Olympics and the World Championships being the two others. Sindhu's match is second in the roster. Quick, back-of-the-envelope calculations showed that three players - Intanon, Tai and China's fast-rising Chen Yufei - had a chance of finishing their pool engagements with two wins and a defeat each, with South Korean Sung Ji Hyun occupying the cellar with two straight defeats, and one more expected at the hands of Tai.

Sindhu leads the game 11-10 at the break in the first game.

Even as her compatriot Kidambi Srikanth bowed out of the tournament without a win, Sindhu has raised hopes of a podium finish with some dominant performances in Dubai so far.

Sindhu started off in a flourish against Yufei with a 5-0 lead in the first game. Sindhu eventually won the game 21-18.
